5.0 out of 5 stars Shine a light on a undediscused issue., December 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Sheading light on an important subject too long ignored by the American News Media. A valuable easy to read and understand discussion of what the Government of The US is doing in our name on what they hope to keep the DARK CONTENENT.
I'm looking forward to Dr. Turse's next book.

As in all of his work Dr. Turse goes where no other investigative Journalist does. Shining a light where the military prefers we are kept in the Dark.
Great Read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep this book handy for future reference, April 5, 2015
As he did with his ground breaking book Patriots, Christian Appy has his reader look at what we call the Vietnam War through different eyes. Where Patriots used the prism of a collage of the wars participants both active and passive, American Reckoning brings the war into focus from the vantage point of our own experiences from decades ago. What we saw then and what we know now in many instances were often at extreme odds. How the war seeped into and stained the mindset of the American public, particularly of men who participated and those on either side of the age of participation by perhaps only a year or two. A worthwhile read for students of American culture, America at War in Vietnam, and for the on point historical references that in my own case slipped from memory.

3.0 out of 5 stars More Venice less Opera, February 20, 2014

A fast read with some amusing tales but did not deliver as much about Venice as it did about the authors opinion of opera.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Important Work, Exteemly well Writen, February 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Ann Jones in addition to being a courageous journalist and perhaps the most experienced woman reporting from shooting war zones is a marvelous writer. Her book should haunt us all, and give those who would send our young men and women to war pause to weigh the cost, especially in light of the drastic results of Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard truths a very important book, October 4, 2013
For decades the US has boasted about the finest military in the world. Heaping faint praise on members of the armed services, calling them heroes, thanking them for their services as reflexive as "God Bless You" follows a sneeze, to anyone dressed as a soldier. During those same decades more often than not the missions to which the military engaged failed to accomplish their goal. In almost all cases our Military, as it is trained, structured and motivated was the wrong tool for the job. With the enormous investment in the military and the military industrial complex that has left our nations tool box otherwise empty, our first and often only response to any circumstance of concern involves military might.
Gung-ho youngsters trained coached and lead to believe they were the force for freedom and democracy the planet over soon gain the savvy to realize political ambition, or commercial opportunity for the lever pullers far removed from the risk endured on the front lines is the real reason their service is valued. However the sons and daughters of the political prestige and profit motivated call to arms voices, seldom value the militaries mission enough to march along side.
Professor Bacevich details with sincerity, authority and a sense that America the strong cannot maintain its prominence in the world by virtue of the point of a gun. He understands that if each of us had to take our place in harms way, we as a nation would pay more attention, be better informed, and scrutinize more critically the call to arms that seem to be part and parcel of a world littered with circumstances uneasy for politicians, profiteers and a military hierarchy looking to get their combat experience box checked on their way up the ladder. Thank You For Your Service Colonel Bacevich
